The area of organizational management has rapid development in information technology and information science and playing a vital role over cloud computing. The cloud computing has emerged as a new paradigm for delivering and hosting services. Various types of services are provided by different organizations to the user to enhance the information system through cloud services. The infrastructure (software/hardware), processing, operation, and cost of the cloud service are effective. The paper proposed a framework to provide an analysis of cloud service to the service provider with a set of parameters as agility, finance, usability, security, system performance using fuzzy logic. The proposed model represent the performance of different cloud service provider with respect to the different parameter for providing services according to the set of requirement to the user as a quality of service (QoS).
